Actually, it is F-ing hard. This little piece took 3 attempts at knitting after caston and keeping the stitches on the needle. Before the beads started to be added each row took about 20 minutes to do 20 stitches.
Why...there is no grip it is like skating with teflon blades on ice. Stitches flying off the needles left and right. The needles 0000. Yup you read right 0000 needles, with thread.
Lookie...a beaded knitted bag (or what will be)
